Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Mozilla Firefox has been updated to version 31.5.0 ESR to fix five
security issues.

These security issues have been fixed :

- CVE-2015-0836: Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in
the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 31.5
allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory corruption and application crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (bnc#917597).

- CVE-2015-0827: Heap-based buffer overflow in the
mozilla::gfx::CopyRect function in Mozilla Firefox
before 31.5 allowed remote attackers to obtain sensitive
information from uninitialized process memory via a
malformed SVG graphic (bnc#917597).

- CVE-2015-0835: Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in
the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 36.0
allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory corruption and application crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (bnc#917597).

- CVE-2015-0831: Use-after-free vulnerability in the
mozilla::dom::IndexedDB::IDBObjectStore::CreateIndex
function in Mozilla Firefox before 31.5 allowed remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
service (heap memory corruption) via crafted content
that is improperly handled during IndexedDB index
creation (bnc#917597).

- CVE-2015-0822: The Form Autocompletion feature in
Mozilla Firefox before 31.5 allowed remote attackers to
read arbitrary files via crafted JavaScript code
(bnc#917597).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
